. good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. president obama and congressional republicans remain worlds apart on a realistic solution to prevent billions of dollars in automatic cuts. the sequester from kicking in march 1st. right now the politics are trumping any movement towards compromise. joining me now for our daily fix chris calizza, msnbc contributor and managing of post politics.com, and washington post reporters laurie montgomery and nia malika henderson. chris, first to you. set the stage for us. there's no solution in sight. is the white house expecting it has the high road in terms of politics of it and that republicans will be on the defensive because i don't see any way they're bridging the gap. there is no outward ed that began is being bridged. i think the government sees the only way it could be bridged by agreeing with some tax increases, and they say, you know what, all these cuts, sure it's a meat clever approach, not a scalpel, but at least they're cuts, and it's not about tax increases. we kind of -- they believe that to maintain the core of who the republic
live for us in washington. what's the latest? >> hi, jamie, hi, kelly. president obama is trying to turn up the heat on republicans, saying all it would take is a quote, little compromise to avoid those 85 billion dollars in spending cuts. the president wants more tax hikes included in any kind of compromise, and posed these questions to republicans who only want spending cuts. >> are republicans in congress willing to let these fall on our kids' schools and mental health care just to prevent tax loopholes. are they willing to slash, because they refuse tax cuts for big oil companies, seriously prepared to put more pain on the middle class because they refuse to put more on those at the top. and they say that americans have been hit with tax increases the beginning of this year when the g.o.p. agreed to go along with the president and allow certain bush era tax cuts to expire. and now republicans say they're ready to compromise on where and how the federal spending is cut, but they don't want more tax hikes and they're challenging the president to explain why he isn't reaching ou
day. andrea mitchell live in washington where president obama is surrounded by uniform police and is now issuing dire warnings about the consequences if automatic budget cuts, the sequester, will create job losses and a setback to the recovery if that goes into effect next week. in response senate republican leader mitch mcconnell still prefers campaign events to -- joining me now for our daily fix, chris calizza and managing editor of post politics.com. well, chris, we saw the performance at the white house. this was a set piece, if you will. the instant response from mitch mcconnell. the bottom line is neither side is negotiating. the white house now assumes the sequester is going to go into effect. is this going to be worked out by continuing resolutions by the end of march? a little bit of short-term pain, long-term gain? >> yep. you know, andrea, i think performance on both sides is the right word. look, i think the policy debate over whether a deal with get done between now and march 1st to avert the sequester is over. congress is away for the president's day week. when
important meetings of the year. shinzo abe is flying to washington for his first talks with u.s. president barack obama since he took office in december. their agenda is packed and their discussions are expected to touch on everything from a wide-ranging free trade deal to punishing north korea. >> translator: i want the summit talks to show the international community that japan and the united states have restored the strong bond of their alliance. >> abe says that alliance became unstable during the former democratic party-led administration. he says he's going to talk to obama about the u.s.-led negotiations for the transpacific partnership. nations that joined the discussions for the free trade agreement are supposed to in principle eliminate all tariffs, but abe doesn't want to abide by the precondition. abe and obama are expected to share ideas on what to do about north korea. scientists in the country last week carried out their third nuclear test. they are agreed to push for a nuclear resolution imposing new sanctions on pyongyang. >>> government officials say the prime minister wi
, voted for congressman, senators, representatives to go to washington and make sure to see to it that president obama, the 44th, did not become king barack the first. he calls that obstructionism. the constitution calls it separation of powers. he calls that political demagoguery, i call it governance at the consent of the government. so, i personally. abcdef, i don't do that, it's a little different, my scale. i narrowed it down i'm going to give him a b-d which stands for bovine droppings. >> mike: i don't know what that means, larry. and let's go to helen from above the law.com. and what do you grade the president? >> i'm going to give him an a, look, it bothers president obama does something against the will of prime minister boehner and mccain. we have an article 2 in the constitution, article 2 in the constitution gives him the power to do, you know, something. right? >> yeah, something indeed, but, but kelly ann, let me ask you, is the something he gets to do is to act without regard to two other branches of government that are equal to the president in power? >> tha
everything that you hear out of washington. today again president obama rang the alarm bells on the four spending cuts that are set to take effect seven days from now. >> i've been very clear that these kinds of arbitrary automatic cuts would have an adverse impact on families, on teachers, on parents who are reliant on head start programs, on our military readiness, on mental health services on medical search. >> you heard a bit of it there, especially from democrats you're hearing we'll have trouble fighting wildfires, airplanes, security lines will be long, all sorts of things. how much of that is true? how much of it is politics? how do we react to that? "outfront," daniel altman, economics professor at nyu, it political columnist for "newsweek" and "the daily beast." you listened to all this talk about all these dire implications, is it real or is it scare tactics? >> some of it is definitely real. if you look at the figures we're looking at maybe 70,000 kids getting kicked out of head start programs. we're looking at a $1.6 billion cut in funding for the national institutes of heal
. democrats want the fight. the republicans perhaps don't. fantastic article today in "washington examiner" which i read all the time. >> no, you don't. >> by bryon york, the effect of boehner's argument is to make obama seem reasonable in comparison. after all, the president certainly agrees that boehner that the sequester cuts threaten national security and jobs. the difference is that obama wants to avoid them. could the gop message on the sequester be anymore self defeating? are they hurting the brand in the fight? >> you have to understand the back story. the gop thought they had a winning hand last year, the message would win them back the white house. it didn't work out that way and then they found themselves in a really difficult situation the end of the year facing tax increases across the board, obama had the upper hand there and they caved in a way that was incredibly painful for them. and so they looking coming out of january, they made the decision that they would rather stand and fight on the sequester than the debt ceiling. fight on the sequester to say in nine days that the
in. obama unfortunately comes in with very little background on foreign policy never paid much attention, is served in washington only two years i was enthusiastic supporter but those of us that looked at him knew it could be a problem and when he appointed secretary of state and secretary of defense for domestic reasons and appointed retired marine general as a national security adviser and put leon panetta, know he is a neighbor in california but captured by the mentality of the cia this was an extremely weak national security team and obama also was ruled by the military that is how you got the search of forces and i think he realizes he was had and that is important why i am a little more optimistic with the second turn this is a wiser man and with the the fact he ended the war in iraq and meandering toward the war in afghanistan allowing the of pentagon, an institution of the fine motor skills of a dinosaur takes them a long time to put something together for withdrawal. all obama has to do is look at gorbachev. he came 1985, a secret speech 1986 denouncing afghanistan, he
and the process of the secretary general's comments to the washington post last week. >> two good, model questions in terms of their brevity. the question also raises the issue of proliferation in the region. one reason the obama administration says the iranian nuclear capability is such a threat is because it would cascade to proliferation around the middle east, but love it if you could address that as well. >> i will answer the questions posed very quickly. i am just a dot middle east expert. this session on iran is talking about iran, but i have a great deal of sympathy for the sentiment. i do believe north korea is a very big problem. we often have the debate if iran is irrational. from what i understand about north korea, you could barely fill a symbol. my sense is they are not always entirely rational either and there are some things going on in that regime that could lead them to do things that are irrational and that worries me enormously. the issue of proliferation gets to north korea as well. proliferation is a very big concern about iran's nuclearization. it is one reason i suggested i

. >>> to washington now where there are just seven days to go before wide-reaching budget cuts take effect. president obama has reached out to top republican leaders to try to kickstart some talks. the phone call marked the first time they've talked on the issue since the fiscal cliff deal next year. the president says it never should have gotten to this point. >> there's no other profession, no other industry where people wait until the 11th hour to solve these big problems. >> but neither side is reporting any progress. instead, aides simply exchanged some taunts via twitter. not a lot of reason for hope here that they're going to get this done. but there's still a few days. >> like the president said, there's nowhere else in the world where you think about it, if it's going to affect that many people and so much money is on the line that we wait for this long for anything to happen. in fact, today our abc's jonathan karl spoke to secretary leon panetta about these cuts. he said if they go into effect, it would turn the united states into a second rate power. >> strong words there. president obama

in the "washington post" obama ruse. it's not that different from what rubio's group is talking about. but republicans can slam obama's plan as some sort of kenyan socialist inspired abdication of sovereignty. >> that's a good one. will laugh at that a week. >> they can blast the provisions on boarder security as laughable. they can describe the absence of a real plan for reforming the legal immigration process as slapdash or unserious or whatever they want to call it. so if the president really wants immigration reform to pass one of the most helpful things he could do is put out his own plan as decoy to draw republican fire while the senate works on bipartisan consensus, which looks suspiciously like what just happened. >> i said when rubio went on fox and other shows,it was a kabuki dance. marco rubio's plan is a great plan, look what he's doing and ignored he's doing it at 95% of what the president is doing. i'm fine. whatever gets you through the night, awesome. but let us not pretend that one of these plans is much different than others because it's just not. >> no, it's not. it
